Richarlison takes racial abuse with banana as Brazil beat Tunisia in friendly

Tottenham striker Richarlison was pelted with a banana during Brazil’s friendly win over Tunisia in Paris on Tuesday.

The incident happened as the former Everton striker ran to the corner flag to celebrate his side’s second goal in the 5-1 win at the Parc des Princes.

The footage showed Manchester United midfielder Fred kicking the banana away.

Before the game, five-time world champions Brazil’s team posed for photos with an anti-racism banner that read: “Without our black players, we wouldn’t have stars on our shirts”.

The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) later issued a statement on the Richarlison incident via Twitter.

It read: “Unfortunately, Richarlison, the scorer of Brazil’s second goal, had a banana thrown onto the pitch.

“CBF reaffirms its position on combating racism and rejects any expression of prejudice.”

Richarlison’s goal restored Brazil’s lead after Montassar Talbi equalized Raphinha’s opener. Neymar added a penalty, Raphinha clinched his second and Pedro scored after Tunisia sent Dylan Bronn off. Richarlison takes racial abuse with banana as Brazil beat Tunisia in friendly
